Get Coaching with a Solutions Focus - 2 Day Program

‘Problem talk creates problems, solutions talk creates solutions’

Steve De Shazer

Coaching with a Solutions Focus is a pragmatic way to build on strengths. By focusing on what’s wanted and drawing out people’s know-how, you‘ll create outstanding results.

We offer you a set of new tools, techniques and tips that you can apply immediately to your current issues and practice. Applied by many professional coaches and managers, these methods are now making significant differences within organizations around the world.

Join the leading world Solutions Focus expert out from the UK - Janine Waldman hosted by Andrew Rixon for an engaging and interactive two-day workshop during which you will:

  • Experience OSKAR, the solutions-focused coaching model

  • Meet the 6 solutions-focused tools

  • Hear case studies of how coaching has transformed other organisations

  • Put concepts and ideas into practical use on individual coaching issues

  • Experience the power of solutions talk, counter finding and scaling

From this workshop delegates can expect to:

  • Discover how to apply solutions-focused coaching with colleagues, staff and clients to get better results

  • Have higher quality conversations, to get their messages across far more effectively

  • Learn how to have coaching conversations that help people identify resources, make progress and improve their performance

  • Take away instantly usable tools and techniques

  • Start making more effective use of time with colleagues and team members

Our approach

Solutions Focus is a pragmatic, positive and highly effective methodology which significantly improves communications for individuals, teams and organisations. Professional coaches, leaders, managers, advisors, mediators and other professional groups worldwide are using Solutions Focus as:

  • A direct route to desired results

  • A systematic approach to conversations that makes a big impact wherever there are complex issues with people involved

  • A way of creating respectful and lasting change

  • A method of identifying what works and doing more of it

Focusing on solutions and doing more of what works is not only enjoyable and empowering, it is often much faster and more effective than analysing problems and difficulties and their causes. It can produce more sustainable results and a lasting shift towards continuous development.

“Solutions-orientated thinking and actions are amongst the most powerful tools a modern executive can have. Weaving positive delivery into my business has enabled me to find ways forward with changes that seemed unattainable.” Andrew Fowlie, General Manager, NHS Grampion

Our methods

Our programmes are designed using the principles of accelerated learning and solutions focus, methodologies that create faster and more effective targeted learning: learning that stays with participants long after the course has been completed.

The workshops will be highly interactive, with plenty of opportunity for skills practice. The content for skill practices will be chosen by participants, giving them the opportunity to practice their coaching skills on work-related situations.
